Harley Benson & Thomann

Long Earth Neil, 03.05.2017
What can I say - awesome start to finish!
Starting with Thomann, order placed and 5 days later (with a holiday weekend in between) guitar was delivered to UK. Not only that but the communications and order tracking was second to none! Highly recommended!

OK, the Harley Benton DC-Custom 612... I was skeptical about Harley Benton being cut price copies but, YouTube research and chats with friends who own put my mind at rest. This is one truly beautiful guitar both in looks and sounds. Looks, a beautiful well finished cherry glaze on a solid mahogany body & neck, quality pups and hardware. In terms of sound, everything you'd expect from a Gibbo but at a tenth of the price! The 12 string is crisp, clear and jangly and the 6 string equally so but gutsy as hell when you kick in an overdrive amp setting!
The one downside, stating the bleeding obvious, this is one hell of a head / neck heavy guitar. Well duh, it's got two necks! This is not a negative, just need to adjust your playing style a bit to hold the neck up - or rest it on your knee for a VERY comfortable play. Overall, for the chunk of wood and hardware, it's surprisingly light.
Final thing, it comes with a custom hard case which, in itself, would be worth £60 - £100 to buy.
Any doubters should give this, or Harley Benton in general, a real chance - a LOT of instrument for your cash!

Great value

smol88, 21.12.2017
I ordered it because it looked like fun, I didn't expect it to play or sound great given its price. When I got I was really surprised by the build quality of the guitar, also the set-up was great!
As you can expect the pickups are a bit weak compared to full fat gibbons but they are playable in good enough to gig with! I'm planning to change them for some Seymour duncuns but that's about all to the mods I would do with it....
It comes with Grover tuners with is great because it ensures a lot better tuning stability.
I've played a few gigs with it so far, alongside a Les Paul standard and an american standerd strat and it hold up great!
so if you are looking for a fun guitar that look great this one may be for you.
